Lubbock Police Department News

Just a reminder, City offices will be closed tomorrow, May 28th in observance of Memorial Day. We hope you are enjoying the Memorial Day weekend! Please be careful and celebrate responsibly.

We cannot reiterate the importance of this enough this weekend! However, our officers patrolling the lake won't end with this weekend. With the unofficial start of summer underway - we'll be out and about!

It's time for the final half of our #FridayFavorite! On Wednesday, we had the privilege of promoting several officers within our department, as well as recognizing officers and civilians for their heroic actions! We love being able to capture these heart-warming moments and share them with you! Also, we don't know about you, but we think that out of all the uniforms worn that day, the Captain America uniform was our favorite! Congratulations to all the recipients!

Did you know, LPD has a Marine Unit?! The Lake Alan Henry is owned by the City of Lubbock, so every summer our officers patrol the lake to make sure boaters and campers are staying safe. As we kick off our lake patrols for Memorial Day weekend, please keep these safety tips in mind! Make sure there are enough life jackets for every person on the boat, anyone under the age of 13 MUST have a life jacket on at all times while the boat is in operation, and yes, you can be arrested for boating while intoxicated. The same laws apply on the water, and you cannot operate a boat if your blood alcohol is over .08. AND there is currently a burn ban in Garza County. Our officers will be visiting the campgrounds to make sure no fire pits or ground fires are being used. Please have a happy and SAFE Memorial Day weekend! If you see us out on the water, say hi!

This is only part one of our #FridayFavorite! After 31 years of service to our great community, Captain Scott Hudgens decided it was time to hang up the uniform. We hate to see him go, but we are so thankful he chose the Lubbock Police Department to serve!

BURN BAN REMINDER! If you're headed to Lake Alan Henry this weekend, please remember there is a burn ban. Our LPD Marine Unit will be out patrolling the lake and campsites. It is still VERY dry out there and temperatures are expected to be in the triple digits. One spark could cause a massive fire. Due to the burn ban, no fire pits or ground fires are allowed. If you are grilling, you MUST have a lid. Please have fun, but stay safe!

Talk about being in the right place at the right time! Today's Torch Run journey took an interesting twist! During the run our officers spotted a trailer that was sparking and caused a grassfire just outside of Ranger, TX. Good thing they were running by! The LPD officers grabbed the fire extinguishers out of the patrol vehicles and were able to put out the fire before it spread. They then waited for the local fire department to get on scene before continuing their run to Arlington. For those traveling this weekend, PLEASE keep these dry conditions in mind. It only takes a tiny spark to start a fire! #WorkinWhileTheyRun #AsIfTheyWerentAlreadyTired #PDPuttingOutFires #WhereYouAtLubbockFireDept #SignUsUp

Don't forget, City Council is meeting THIS EVENING! Feel free to stop by! However, if you can't make it, you can always watch the meeting. Check below to see what channel it will be on!

Today is quite a special day across not only the country, but the world! It's #RedNoseDay - and as you can see, we have lots of people here within the department....sworn, civilian, dispatchers (and even our technology) ready and willing to don a red nose for this fantastic cause! Funds raised by #RedNoseDay support more than a dozen programs dedicated to keeping children safe, healthy, and educated - a wonderful cause we have no problem getting behind! We would love to see YOUR red nose today, too! Feel free to share by commenting below!

TORCH RUN UPDATE: Yesterday our 3 Lubbock Police Department teams ran a total of 90, that's NINETY, miles! The LSO team tacked on another 30 miles. These are a few snapshots from yesterday's journey. This morning they headed out early from Abilene! Keep up the great work and stay safe! #SpecialOlympics #LubbockPolice #LawEnforcementTorchRun

Did you know that there is a way to look up different projects here in the state of Texas?!? Yup, but NOW it's even EASIER to use! All you have to do is click on the link below and you'll be completely aware of what's going on and where!

And they're off! This morning more than two dozen Lubbock Police Officers, Lubbock County Sheriff's Office deputies and other local first responders headed out on the 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics! We also had several other first responders join them for the first leg of the run which was was approximately 3 miles. Today was just the beginning! They will run all the way to Arlington by Friday. We are so PROUD of these officers who continually raise money for our local Special Olympics Texas - South Plains Area athletes. Over the next few days look for updates as we give you a look at their progress!

Lubbock Police Detectives need your help identifying and locating, the woman and the vehicle in the pictures below! Detectives in the Property Crimes Unit believe she was involved in a vehicle burglary on May 20th, at the game room located at 3910 Avenue A. If you recognize her, or remember seeing her somewhere, please let us know! You can comment below, message us, or call Crime Line at 741-1000. All you have to do is mention case number: 18-18698 and we'll take it from there!

***UPDATE: SHE HAS BEEN FOUND*** We have great news to pass along. Kirsten Davis has just been found and is safe. We appreciate the media and public’s help in distributing her information so quickly. It undoubtedly helped in locating her this morning. Initially her disappearance appeared to be suspicious due to the phone call she made to her mother at 7a.m. this morning. The phone call caused concern and led investigators to believe she was in distress. Our officers began to investigate immediately and are thankful to see she is safe. ***MISSING & ENDANGERED*** Detectives with the Lubbock Police Department are currently searching for 23-year-old Kirsten Davis who was reported missing this morning by a family member. At this time, Davis is considered missing and endangered. At approximately 9 a.m. the Lubbock Police Department was notified that Davis had not returned home from the night before. Davis had last contacted her mother around 7 a.m. and was last seen in the area of 1900 69th Street. Due to suspicious circumstances surrounding her disappearance, detectives with the Lubbock Police Department Person Crimes Unit are investigating the case. Investigators are asking for the public’s help. If anyone has seen Davis or has information about her whereabouts, please call 911. Davis has blonde hair and blue eyes, is 5’06” and weighs approximately 180 pounds.

If you see a lot of our Motorcycle Officers, Mustangs and a big group of people running ... this is what you're seeing!!! What a fun way to kick off our morning! We are so PROUD of our local first responders who are taking part in the Torch Run to benefit Special Olympic Athletes. Be sure to cheer them on if you see them! Thanks, Leslie Adami - KLBK News for swinging by!

Y'all, we are STILL on cloud nine after all the kindness and love we were shown last week for #NationalLaEnforcement week. We truly could not have imagined our hearts swelling anymore than they already did. BUT, we hadn't seen these thank you notes from the 154 kids in 2nd grade at Lubbock-Cooper Central Elementary. And, you guessed it, these notes put us over the moon! To be honest though, Assistant Chief Neal Barron had the MOST fun, since he had the honor of being able to talk to these kids about all the different things our officers get the chance to do! But, we're awfully thankful he let them know that the BEST part of our job, is getting to protect kids across Lubbock! Thank you all SO much for gifting us with these kind words! And to all the kids who told us in these notes that they, too, want to be police officers one day....well, we can't wait!

Alright, y'all, our detectives in the Property Crimes Unit are asking for YOUR help! You see, your tips help out our detectives TREMENDOUSLY....which is exaclty why they keep coming back to our PIO unit to get these videos out to the public! In the video below, you'll see a total of four people, but there's only one suspect. So, why show all of them? Well, detectives think there may be a greater chance that someone out there knows at least one of the four, which means there would be a greater chance of catching this suspect! What detectives also need you to do, in addition to looking closely at all four in the video, is WATCH THE SUSPECT'S RIGHT HAND while he's at the counter. Talk about OBVIOUS! Anyway, if you know who the suspect is, or really, who ANY of these people are, feel free to comment below, message us, or call Crime Line at 741-1000 and mention case number: 18-10684. We can't wait to hear from you!

**ARREST MADE IN RECENT SHOOTING** Kivalier Russell, 22, is now in the Lubbock County Detention Center charged with aggravated assault in connection to a May 13th shooting in the 1800 block of Buddy Holly Avenue. An arrest warrant for the aggravated assault was issued last Friday. On Monday, May 21st, Russell turned himself in around 7:30 p.m. Russell was also arrested for two other outstanding warrants not related to this case. In the early morning hours of Sunday, May 13th, Lubbock Police officers responded to reports of multiple gunshots in the area of 1800 Buddy Holly. While officers were on scene, a 25-year-old gunshot victim with serious but non-life threatening injuries arrived at University Medical Center. Through the initial investigation, it appears two groups of people got into a physical altercation. After the fight was broken up, one group got into a vehicle to leave the area. At that point, it appears someone from the other group began shooting at the vehicle, striking a back passenger. This case remains under investigation and more arrests connected to this shooting are possible.

As we begin our day, we want to give a big shout out to these officers, spouses of officers, and friends of officers for showing up and SHOWING OUT on Saturday....all for the Special Olympics Texas - South Plains Area! Talk about an AWESOME day! This year was the inaugural Sirens Series Softball Tournament and LPD's 'Hit N Run' team (yes, you read that right) managed to bring home first place out of 11 teams competing....five of which were law enforcement. WOW! While we're pretty proud of this team and their accomplishments, what we're even more proud of is all of the athletes that made up the three LPD teams, and the selfless nature they showed, along with their willingness to raise money for an incredible cause! We can't wait to see you guys raise even more money next year!

Have you seen these men? They're covered up, but we're hoping you might recognize them. These two were caught on camera committing a robbery at the 7/11 at 2608 Avenue Q around 5 a.m. today. Both were armed with guns during the robbery. While suspect #1 jumped over the counter, suspect #2 made the only customer go into the bathroom while they stole money and tobacco products. Investigators need your help to identify these two. If you have any information please give us a call at Crime Line 806-741-1000 and reference case #: 18-18720. Remember, you can stay completely anonymous and your tip could lead to a cash reward!

While last week was National Law Enforcement Week, this week is #NationalEMSweek....a week VERY MUCH DESERVED! These men and women go above and beyond every single day - and we know that we could not do our job, much of the time, without them! We are so proud to be able to work with you on a daily truly is an honor! We'd love to hear how EMS helped YOU out! All you have to do is comment below - and we can guarantee they will love reading your 'Thank You's'!
